Today, history was made. Yes, we are talking about the only news that matters: 18 years after opening to international acclaim and forcing food lovers around the globe to Google the words “sea buckthorn,” Rene Redzepi’s restaurant Noma posted on Instagram that Michelin decided to award the restaurant its coveted three-star rating, a designation that had thus far eluded the otherwise-as-acclaimed-as-possible restaurant. In the parlance of the Michelin guide, this means the restaurant is “worth a special journey!” (That exclamation point is theirs.)

Maybe, at long last, the jet-setting gourmands of the world will start paying attention to this small-town hit?
